Get your body back and bond with your baby at the same time.
6. HIP OPENER From Moving Low Lunge, switch legs so your right foot is forward, knee in line with the right ankle, and place your hands and forearms on the floor on either side of your baby. Keeping your left knee on the floor, press your hips forward until you feel a stretch in your groin and in the front of your left thigh. Hold for 3–5 breaths. Switch legs and repeat, placing left foot next to your baby. Stretches front thighs, inner thighs and hip flexors.
7. WIDE-LEG FORWARD BEND/CHILD’S POSE From Hip Opener, place your hands on the floor on either side of your baby. Inhale and bring your back foot forward so both feet are slightly behind and on either side of your hands. Straighten and stretch your legs, using your abs to keep your torso lifted (A). Hold for 3–4 breaths. From here, place your knees on either side of your baby, extend forearms around him and sit back onto your heels to rest (B). Stretches hamstrings and inner thighs, and strengthens abs.
